With a kiss of a rose, two worlds become one
With a switch of a blade, two lives are ruined

Two people to one
And with the kiss of a rose the purest love of the universe is lost

generation who wants the freedom and future of the next generation to come, in tact, no matter the costs.

didn’t want this for him; didn’t want him to be brought into this life,
my life. I thought for sure he’d be a laborer. But

He looked around, taking in
the atmosphere of the sitting room.
satin chairs and couches occupied the center of the room, and around the
fire place. The fire crackled quietly, the
fire beginning to die down .A chain hung from the ceiling held pale florescent lights in a circular pattern. The ornate curtains
were drawn over the picture windows, effectively blocking the light from of the moon.
Vandarin crossed his arms in a nervous manner, switching his weight between feet.
A door on the other side of the room quietly opened. Vandarin tensed, blood racing, adrenalin pumping…

Izabelle paled at the word ‘entertainment’.
um hello, Vandarin, Um…”She let out an exasperated breath. “Look, this
is my first time. I’m nervous and don’t
know what I’m suppose to do; and I know I’m not supposed to tell you this and I don’t know why I am. I guess-“
“It’s my first time too,” he interrupted her rambling.
“It….It is?” Vandarin nodded. “Are you…nervous?” she asked meekly.
